Well, we wrapped up the Patent Baristas iBarista contest after two lucky winners were picked to receive iBarista iPods.

Winner #1.

News like that is indeed a pleasant way to wrap up [the] week.”

Winner #2.

Chris was happy to win noting “This is very exciting, as I have never won anything like this before, ever.”

Congratulations to our winners!  We hope they enjoy their new iPods (despite the evil DRM restrictions).  Also, thanks to everyone who participated, it was fun.
